Cote d'Or Beach (also known as Anse Volbert) is a stunning white-sand beach that frequently appears on best-beach lists. There is a good number of hotels and restaurants nearby. The only downside to this gorgeous strip of sand, probably Praslin's most popular, is that you won't be alone, and you may get hassled by beach boys selling boat trips and the like. Amenities: Food and drink, toilets (at hotels). Best for: Swimming, partiers, walking.
